A shape sensitive, variational approach for the matching of surfaces considered as thin elastic shells is investigated. The elasticity functional to be minimized takes into account two different types of nonlinear energies: a membrane energy measuring the rate of tangential distortion when deforming the reference shell into the template shell, and a bending energy measuring the bending under the deformation in terms of the change of the shape operators from the undeformed into the deformed… 
Symmetry and scaling limits for matching of implicit surfaces based on thin shell energies
This work presents a symmetric energy functional such that given two particular shapes, it assigns the same energy to any given deformation as to its inverse when the roles of the shapes are interchanged, and introduces the adequate parameter scaling to recover a surface problem when the width of the narrow band vanishes.
Elastic Correspondence between Triangle Meshes
A novel approach for shape matching between triangular meshes that, in contrast to existing methods, can match crease features and is applicable for surface interpolation, consistent cross‐field computation, and consistent quadrangular remeshing of a set of shapes.

A Thin Shell Approach to the Registration of Implicit Surfaces
A variational approach is proposed, which distinguishes two different types of energy contributions: a membrane energy measuring the rate of tangential distortion when deforming the reference surface into the template surface, and a bending energy reflecting the required amount of bending.
